Hello, I would like to disable the “Join Us” option. I dont want the ability for anyone to register for a member account. What PHP file(s) do I need to modify to remove this?March 22, 2012 at 12:55 am #43247adminKeymaster
Before you apply a tweak by modifying the code I would recommend trying the following approach which doesn’t require any code modification:
1. Remove, the “registration form” shortcode from the registration page. This will make it so no one can go there and sign up for a membership account.
2. Let your *non-member* visitors go to the “Join Us” page and then on that page explain what short of membership site your are running (for example: private invitation only). You can explain why you are not taking on members or any other explanation that you have. As long as you don’t leave any means to register for an account on the “Join Us” page, no one can register for an account. But at least they know why they cannot do so.
If I landed on a protected page and I only saw an option to login, I would be wondering why I can’t join and become a member myself. The above approach will take care of the curious ones.March 22, 2012 at 2:14 am #43248
Thanks for that info, but how do I just remove the “Join Us” entirely? Our member site is set up differently than how most people may use the software. Our members areas are not available to just anyone. The admin of the website controls who is able to login.
Can you just tell me what PHP file I need to access to simply remove the Join Us link?March 22, 2012 at 3:43 am #43249PeterMember
Another possibility is just to use CSS tweak to hide the join us link. See the following post:March 22, 2012 at 11:18 am #43250
That worked perfectly! Thank youMay 19, 2012 at 12:28 pm #43251davidsunmusicMember
Hi there, I want to be able to offer an ‘invitation only’ type of membership, so would prefer to have the option for anyone to sign-up hidden. I’ve navigated to the eMember_custom_style.css file in order to paste the suggested code, but the file is listed as ‘inactive’ for some reason, so my changes aren’t implemented. I’ve fully activated the plugin – what could be the problem? Many thanks.May 20, 2012 at 12:02 am #43252adminKeymaster
Don’t pay attention to that *inactive* file status message. For some reason WordPress shows that “Inactive” message when editing a plugin file via the WordPress editor. It doesn’t really mean that the changes you make to it is not getting applied. Please post a link to your login page so I can take a look and see what CSS code you added.
